because I’m speaking interstate at a writers’ festival xx
I’m away for work as of today (which I completely forgot about until my boss asked me if I wanted to meet at the hotel on Friday).
Also, in the interest of full disclosure, I’m also speaking at the Young Writer’s festival in Newcastle at the very end of September, too, so the update schedule looks like this:
Tuesday 6th Sep: No Chapter (away for work)
Tuesday 13th Sep: Chapter 19
Tuesday 20th Sep: Chapter 20
Tuesday 27th Sep: No Chapter (away for work)
Tuesday 4th October: Chapter 21
Tuesday 11th October: No Chapter (my wife and I have birthdays this week)
Tuesday 18th October: Chapter 22
Thanks for your patience! Balancing work with writing is difficult at this time of year!
My editor and I had a mismatch in schedules (we’re both very busy!) and as a result she can’t look at the chapter until next weekend, and there’s no way in hell I’m publishing anything at this point in the book without her careful once-over and critique.
Sorry guys! Hopefully you enjoy this chapter once it’s finalised 🙂
Why? Because I’m getting married to my wonderful girlfriend 🙂 🙂
